Yes indeed it all looks very impressive and it seems to be what Tivo should have been when it first came out.
Tivo can do all this but not VM's Tivo, only the mainstream Tivo service in US.
If you go to the Tivo website it shows what it can really do not just what VM have allowed it to do here.
Sky Q looks just like Tivo mainstream service. Main box with mini boxes elsewhere all integrated to record, watch, pause, rewind all your content anywhere in your house. Actually just what Virgin Media can't do.
I will be interested to see how this effects the VM customer churn rates when it comes out.
An enhanced VM TiVO is in the pipeline. Cant say any more than that at the moment.
How long is the pipe??
SkyQ looks like a game changer, and I certainly wont be committing to VM when my contract is up in Dec. The Tivo promised so much, on launch, and has failed to live up to its own hype... Whilst theres no argument that VMs broadband is second to none, and rock solid.. do home users really need more than 100mb?
Ive read that VM last over 10k TV customers in the last quarter.. they need to be pulling their finger out!
Sky Q HDMI port is 2.0 not 2.0a so it won't do HD at 50 Fps it'll do it at 25 Fps no dolby atmos planned and not 4k content until late 2016, give Virgin time to bring out a much better product (we hope)

Well, we have had the hype, we now await the reality, because as weTIVO users know the difference between hype and reality can be quite traumatic if you believed the hype. Personally I'm not too bothered by the new sky Q, I am not getting4K anytime soon, as a one person household, multiroom is irrelevant to me; about the only interest for me is the download ability onto tablets to watch later, or if I am without Internet connection a la SKY-GO; that would be useful. The Sky Q has not even been Priced yet and most commentators say its going to be priced at as a premium service, so it may be prohibitively expensive for those that cant afford current services, same goes forTIVOMk2 , that's likely to be more per month, plus the usual surcharges like install, activation and probably a4K charge. As with everything in Digital Media, more whizz bangs, means more pounds per month.
